A TRENCH LIBRARY FOR SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Catholic Press — 29 February 1896

A FRENCH LIBRARY FOR SYDNEY. The object of the establishment of this library, the prospectus tells us, is to propa gate the knowledge and to facilitate the study of the French language and literature. The undertaking, therefore, is one which well de serves support, and which appeals, from more than one point of view, to the sympathy of the public. The acquaintance, for example, which as a rule the people of England have with their French neighbours is not of a very intimate kind ; nay, notwithstanding the easier modes of travelling and the increased and constantly increasing advantage that is taken of them, it may be doubted as to whether the prejudices of more. stay-at-home times have been wholly removed. The Frenchman in too many instances, in all probability, still remains for the Englishman a character of some suspicion, and one from association with whom much profit cpuld not be derived. In these colonies, moreover, the French have been made to appear under particular disadvant...

AMUSEMENTS. ___ ? *-_ ? THE ClilTERION THEATliE. Mn. G-eouge Dauuell's comedy, ' Wanted, a Wife,' replaced 'Mixed' on Saturday night. The fun chiefly centres round a matri monial agency, where a number of individuals, some in need of money, others of beauty, call to have, if possible, their various wants supplied. A good many complications follow, but the crisis is reached when a gouty general, having parted with a sovereign for the purpose of being registered, threatens to blow up the establishment if his money's worth — to the extent of a wife — is not supplied forthwith. me machine arrives, is wountt up oy mistake, and before the unfortunate matrimonial manager is able to produce the necessary feminine loveliness, all at once explodes. Unluckily at this juncture a number of the characters are in close proximity to the machine, and some of them naturally get hurt. The scene changes, and we are brought to the house of the worthy general, where the victims of the explouion demand da...

ATHLETICS. Professor T. B. Bax on Saturday night, at Foley's Athletic Hall, Woollahra, broko the world's record for continuous club swinging. The task was com menced at 7.15 on Friday evening, and concluded at 11.15 on Saturday evening, a period of 28 hours. The previous record was Griffiths', of Hobart, who put in 27 hours. ? The professor was anxious to go on till Sunday, at least, but his committee persuadod him to discontinue. In the course of a conversation, the professor said he experienced no inconvenience beyond a slight pain in the calves of the legs and a little stiffness in the arms and shoulders. During the m'otrress of his task Professor Bax was fed with beef tea, cocon, biscuits, and a little port wine. The revolutions averaged about 67 per minute, and the clubs each weighed 21b. 9oz. Mr. Laurence Foley gave the use of his hall, etc., free of charge for the occasion. A benefit will be tendered to Processor Bax on Monday next at Foley's Hall.

Mr j. uunniB kJCAtuu mny vl iuuy iiuu nave Bputt.i.'Jl such words ; but, if he ever did so, he was only paraphrasing, in turn, what the Times itself declared, in calm moments, some thirty odd years ago, the Celtic race would be justified in feeling.
